Melania is the first Catholic first lady since Jackie Kennedy

U.S. President Donald Trump left meets Pope Francis Wednesday

"All eyes were on the Vatican on Wednesday when Trump, along with members of his family and political inner circle, shared a private audience with the pontiff". Trump thanked him and said: "We can use peace". But after a half-hour meeting behind closed doors, Francis seemed to have cheered up considerably. The two shared some light banter, with the pope even teasing Mrs. Trump about what sort of treats she's been feeding her husband, suggesting potizza, a Slovenian pastry. He frames climate change as an urgent moral crisis and blames global warming on an unfair, fossil fuel-based industrial model that harms the poor the most.

A Vatican statement said the meeting was "cordial" and that the Vatican hoped there could be "serene collaboration" between the United States government and the American Catholic Church, including "assistance to immigrants".

Since Inauguration Day, the inscrutable first lady Melania Trump has been scrutinized for any sign of her interior monologue.

Typically when White Houses wish to issue a comment, it's attributed to the press secretary.

It was just a wild ride, man. "You just hold on and have faith in the safety advances that we've had over the years". The race was red flagged to clean the track, but both drivers escaped without serious injury.

Despite having somewhat controversially not worn headscarves in Saudi Arabia, both Trump ladies wore traditional black veils as they visited the Holy City, along with long-sleeved, modest-length black dresses, in compliance with Vatican protocol.

"A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian", Francis said.

"It is my desire that you become an olive tree to construct peace", the Pope said.

Mr Trump gave the pope a boxed set of five first-edition books by murdered U.S. civil rights leader Martin Luther King. The Pope, upon completing their meeting, gave the President a medal featuring an olive branch.

Whether the pope was actually ribbing the leader of the free world on his diet or not, the president has some unique ideas about health. The Pope had the subject on the agenda, and Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State at the Vatican, exhorted Trump to not yank America out of the 2015 Paris climate agreement.

Ivanka and Jared were a constant presence at Trump's side in Israel.

Protests are also expected on Wednesday in Rome and later in the week when Trump travels to Brussels for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting and Sicily for a G7 gathering.
